    A 9, based solely on the information being given.

    Studious, solitary, analytical...dude was a 5. His life's work was spent analysing and compartmentalising other people and the way they behaved.

    not all 5s are stingy (particularly Sx 5s. I don't see many Sx doms of any type being very stingy)
    that said, I have no idea what his type is

    SX 5's would sound "more" like 4's. If you were to note any variant of 5, it'll have to be SO/SX.

    I can see other instinctual variants of 5 being possible too (instinctual variant doesn't have anything to do with it). I'll take Jung to be a 9w1 with a strong 5, almost split 9/5 (apparently it's not uncommon).

    Given his intellectual desires to understand the human mind by developing the idea of cognitive functions, I can't see how Carl Jung would be anything other than a 5 (and Ti dom).

    I haven't read much about him.

    However I'm inclined to think he might have been a 4w5 or perhaps a 5w4? (More former than latter)

    Why? I seem to believe he might be a INFJ with a heavy emphasis on Ni and Ti over Fe.
